if they call themselves a legion maybe they have reffered to themselves as manipals then "all roman"

They're an expy of the Roman legion, so you can probably go with that.

Contubernium: "tent unit" of 8 men
Centuria: 80 men commanded by a centurion
Cohort: 6 centuries or a total of 480 fighting men. Added to these were officers. The first cohort was double strength in terms of manpower, and generally held the best fighting men
Legion: made up of 10 cohorts

Three? They are nearly always in a threesome when they are wandering around Skyrim. Any skirmish with Stormcloaks in the wilderness is usually three against three.

A patrol?

Though I'm not sure it fully lines up the same and likely uses different namings for lower numbers to make them more imperial sounding.

Gonna go with "Imperial sounding" as well. If they wanted to stick closer to the Roman theme they should of used Ballista in their siege also.

Oops! Read the query wrong (late night) thought thery were asking how many men make up a smaller unit. Sorry.
